SOLD OUT! V.E. Schwab: Vengeful

Monday October 8: 7:00PM 8:00PM

This event is sold out! we will hold a standby line in front of our store at 6:30 pm on broadway before the event and allow entry if space permits.


Magneto and Professor X. Superman and Lex Luthor. Victor Vale and Eli Ever. Sydney and Serena Clarke. Great partnerships, now soured on the vine.

But Marcella Riggins needs no one. Flush from her brush with death, she’s finally gained the control she’s always sought—and will use her new-found power to bring the city of Merit to its knees. She’ll do whatever it takes, collecting her own sidekicks, and leveraging the two most infamous EOs, Victor Vale and Eli Ever, against each other once more. With Marcella’s rise, new enmities create opportunity—and the stage of Merit City will once again be set for a final, terrible reckoning.

In Vengeful, Schwab cleverly explores the relationships between superheroes and supervillains… and the begrudging ways their fates are intertwined. Her skill for creating worlds so vibrant they come alive as additional characters is phenomenal to behold. Add in characters so real they bleed off the page and a plot you can’t tear yourself away from, and you will start to understand what has made V. E. Schwab so popular.
